Georgia-Pacific Chemicals offers important ingredients for the paint and coatings market.

Phenolics are used to formulate thermoset protective coatings for rigid substrates. Often used as the sole resin, Georgia-Pacific Chemicals phenolics can be modified with small amounts of epoxies, vinyls or any other hydroxyl-containing polymer to optimize chemical resistance. Major applications for these products include: coatings for drums and pails, tanks and rail car linings, pipes, coil coatings and can linings.

Other GP Chemicals phenolic resins are used to formulate high-performance varnishes and oil-based vehicles for air dry paints in the paint and coatings industry. Because they are formulated to adhere to poorly prepared steel surfaces, these products are a key ingredient for maintenance and marine coatings.


Georgia-Pacific Chemicals has been appointed exclusive distributor of Curaphen resins by Bitrez Ltd. for Canada, the United States and Mexico. These low free monomer products can help coatings manufacturers facing regulatory challenges. For more information on Curaphen products, contact Georgia-Pacific Chemicals.
